Prof Babatunde Ogunnaike

Visiting Faculty

Babatunde Ogunnaike, Visiting Faculty, Nigeria – Professor Ogunnaike has taught the following courses at AUST: Probability, Statistics and Design of Experiments. Professor Ogunnaike is Deputy Dean, William L. Friend Chaired Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Professor, Center for Systems Biology at the University of Delaware. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Lagos, and master's and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His research is concerned with the development of effective control techniques, with application to complex industrial processes and the development of biological control systems-the means by which mammalian organisms maintain stable, efficient and "near-optimal" performance and homeostasis in the face of external and internal perturbations. His research program in engineering control systems has recently led to the development (and patenting) of a next generation regulatory controller as an alternative to the ubiquitous, but difficult to tune PID controller.
